Georgian cuisine: Khachapuri and local wine

3 and 4 The next “must experience” things in Tbilisi, are Georgian wine and cuisine. The blogger knows about “qvevri” earthenware vessels: “the traditional method of using clay pots or qvevri, filled with grapes, left to ferment and then buried in the ground to age, lends the wine a unique flavour and unlike any that I've tasted elsewhere in the world.” Cheese filled bread “Khachapuri” and filled dumplings “Khinkali” are her favorite Georgian meals.
